This year, help plant a tree in honor of Earth Day! The New York Restoration Project is partnering again with community organizations throughout the five boroughs to give away hundreds of free trees to New Yorkers. Join the ongoing mission to transform public spaces into more nature-friendly areas by planting trees across the city.

Before picking up a free tree, make sure to preregister. You must agree to: “plant in one of the five boroughs; keep trees properly watered and maintained; and plant your tree in the ground of your yard or community garden and NOT along streets or in city parks.” See here for locations and times.
